对香港的再教育

发自香港——上任还不到100天,香港新一任行政长官梁振英就成为了政治焦点,更以前所未有的速度丧失了原本精明强干,诚实可信及铁腕领袖的形象。

梁振英上任还不到两周就有一名内阁官员因贪污被捕。另外一名内阁官员则被发现曾是一所非法笼屋的无良房东——他把一切责任都推给自己的妻子并矢口否认参与该事。梁振英自己也陷入了家中几处违法建筑物的事件当中——他正是利用类似丑闻击败了选举对手唐英年的。

令梁振英名声大噪的还有其引发大量教师和学生走上街头大规模抗议的草率决定——在学校课程中增设“国民教育课”来将香港年轻一代与祖国大陆“重新连接”起来。对成千上万的学生抗议者来说(许多人的父母也尾随其后),失去客观公正立场的教育是无法承受的。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

    The Hungarian Government’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
